The final of the Champions League will oppose Liverpool to Real Madrid. A match that promises to be a good one to follow on May 28 at the Stade de France. In addition to opposing two great European clubs, it will be a crucial moment for the race for the golden ball between Sadio Mane and Karim Benzema.
Mane helped his country, Senegal, to win the African Cup of Nations earlier this year. And Henry believes that if he helps the Reds win the Champions League and an unprecedented quadruple, it could increase his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.
« If you think about the final and to make it even bigger, the two favorites for the Ballon d’Or are Sadio Mane and Karim Benzema, » the Arsenal legend told CBS Sports.
« This will add a little extra spice. I still think Benzema is ahead, but if Mane wins it with Liverpool and they do the quadruple, it would be a pretty solid case. It would be great for Africa, but I’m still going with Benzema, » reports LiverpoolEcho.
